Java License Assessment
Oracle previously announced changes to their support policies for Java SE 8. Why is this important?
Java SE 8 includes several components that are widely used across enterprise environments including laptops, workstations, servers, VMs and in the Cloud. Prior to January 2019 Oracle's version of Java SE 8 could be used for free. Patches, upgrades and security fixes were also made available publicly for free. This is no longer the case and an organization that uses Oracle Java faces some potential new risks around usage and licensing.
Due to the complexity around Oracle licensing, the primary objective of Olitech’s Java License Assessment is to help manage these license risks by understanding if and how they apply to the organization and quantifying them based on discussions and information collected from stakeholders. Olitech provides a Java License Assessment for our clients to help them assess their risks with Oracle Java and determine the best path forward, from a licensing and technical perspective.
Olitech has a proven history of success in helping Fortune 500 companies, federal, state, and local governments optimize their Oracle licenses, reduce their IT costs and identify/mitigate risks when it comes to Oracle. Olitech has first-hand experience navigating large and complex contract negotiations, license compliance reviews/audits, and securing best-in-market pricing, terms, and conditions.
